MURFREESBORO, Tenn. -- Eleven baby ducklings were rescued in Murfreesboro.

Ten of the ducks were rescued without incident from a storm drain on Southeast Broad Street Saturday by Engine 1 and two sergeants of the Murfreesboro Fire & Rescue. The eleventh was rescued by Discovery Center employees by canoe.

Once reunited, the mama duck led them across the river.

This was not the first duck rescue experienced at this storm drain, according to the shift commander.
